This topic outlines the new Poison Centre requirements which were introduced by a new Annex to EC Regulation 1272/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP). The new Annex, Annex VIII relates to harmonised information for emergency health response and requires hazardous mixtures to be notified to poison centres.
Importers and downstream users placing hazardous mixtures on the market, and distributors who modify the label or packaging for hazardous mixtures, need to notify the ingredients in those mixtures classified as hazardous for physical effects and/or health effects.
